Welcome and thank you for your interest in Beacon Day School. In addition to exploring our website, I encourage you to schedule a time to visit our school to experience the dynamic and engaging environment as captured by KPIX CBS 5 in a “Cool School” segment featuring Beacon.

For more than 32 years Beacon has been at the forefront of developmentally responsive education, providing the ideal conditions for academic success. Our goal is for every child to be a confident, successful learner, who truly enjoys school, embraces the arts, and is at home in a genuinely diverse community.

The admission committee evaluates each applicant individually for academic readiness. We seek students who will thrive in Beacon’s hands-on, project-based educational program. Admission is open to all students, regardless of race, color, religion, gender, sexual orientation and national or ethnic origin.

As a member of the East Bay Independent School Association (EBISA), we comply with EBISA deadlines for fall entry. Throughout the year, Beacon has rolling admission on a space-available basis for all grades, kindergarten through grade 8. Please contact the Admission Office with inquiries.

I look forward to helping you discover if Beacon Day School is a match for your family.
